I have actively assisted in teaching and mentoring new doctors regarding peripheral nerve surgery.

My surgical videos are used by the Association of Extremity nerve surgeons on their website and at conferences to train new surgeons.


Mentoring and teaching doctors on the concepts and surgical procedures that reverse Neuropathy, Restless Legs Syndrome and Chronic pain

Offering a non-drug solution to nerve pain.

Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons-logoI have been closely associated with the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons since its inception. The purpose of this Association is for the scientific advancement of knowledge regarding the human peripheral nervous system. It started when Dr. Steve Barrett introduced me to Dr. Lee Dellon from The Dellon Institutes For Peripheral Nerve Surgery and a professor of Plastic Surgery and Neurosurgery at John Hopkins.

I was one of the first 40 doctors that Dr. Dellon trained to do decompression surgeries on nerve tunnels in the lower extremity to reverse neuropathy.

To support the concepts of Dr. Lee Dellon, myself and several other colleagues created the association of extremity nerve surgeons. I currently am on the Board of Trustees, and I am a past president. My passion for helping patients who may have lost hope in their search for relief of their nerve pain motivates me to teach other surgeons. Doctors are not only taught the surgical skills they need but also on the proper evaluation of their patients.

When patients assume that all they my have as an option is medication or “living with it” it’s nice to offer them a way out. Especially in this time with opiate addiction has become an issue!
